From the Inside Flap:
hat runway shows are to fashion design and opening nights are to Broadway, so are designer show houses to the rarefied world of deluxe interior design. And no show house is as storied or revered as New York’s Kips Bay Decorator Show House. For more than four decades, this convention of high society arrives each spring with much pomp and circumstance. Its alumni reads like a Who’s Who of interior décor, from legendary names that have defined design for many years to newcomers waiting in the wings to make their mark.
At Kips Bay, trends begin and traditions are celebrated, all in the interest of furthering the craft of turning houses into homes. And for the designer, adding a Kips Bay room to one’s curriculum vitae stands as a sparkling jewel in the crown of one’s career.
Designer, author and observer of all things stylish, Steven Stolman was born in Boston and raised in West Hartford, Connecticut. A graduate of New York’s Parsons School of Design, he spent many years as a “worker bee” on Seventh Avenue before going out on his own with a collection of resort wear for men, women and children. Sold from his eponymous shops in tony towns like Southampton, Palm Beach, Nantucket and Beverly Hills, his simple, unique designs cut from decorative fabrics became a cult favorite among the smart set; they remain collectors’ items to this day.
In 2011, Stolman was tapped to serve as president of Scalamandré, the renowned textiles house. During his threeyear tenure, he spearheaded an extraordinary brand expansion that brought the Scalamandré name and its iconic motifs to distinctive collections of china and crystal, deluxe bedding, lighting, upholstered furniture, decorative accessories and paper goods that continue to be sold worldwide.
This tome marks Steven Stolman’s third book, following Scalamandré: Haute Décor and Confessions of a Serial Entertainer. He is married to software executive Rich Wilkie and divides his time between homes in Palm Beach, New York and Milwaukee.
